Abstract:

The pressure dependence of the electrical conductivity of Ag2HgI4 was investigated. The resistance of VO2 through the semiconductor-to-metal transition was measured as a function of hydrostatic pressure. The transition was studied in pure and partially hydrated single crystals of VO2 and in powdered VO2. Finally, a high pressure microwave cavity for use in magnetic resonance was investigated. A sapphire cone terminated at the large end with a metallic sample served simultaneously as a pressure seal and the resonant structure for a 1 cm magnetic resonance spectrometer.
